When selecting the perfect screen for outdoor spaces, understanding the differences between various mesh options is crucial. At Lafferty Aluminum & Screening, we prioritize providing the right solutions for your needs. Let's delve into the distinctions between the 18/14 and 20/20 screens to help you make an informed decision for your home.
- The numbers in the mesh size represent the number of openings per linear inch. In an 18/14 screen, there are 18 openings in one direction and 14 openings in the other, while a 20/20 screen has 20 openings in both directions per inch.
- Both 18/14 and 20/20 screens offer effective protection against insects, ensuring a bug-free environment. The primary difference lies in the size of the openings, affecting the level of visibility and airflow.
- The 18/14 screen, with larger openings, provides better visibility and airflow. It is an excellent choice for spaces where a clear view of the surroundings is essential, allowing more natural light to filter through.
- The 20/20 screen, with smaller openings, offers enhanced insect protection while slightly reducing visibility and airflow. It is ideal for areas where maintaining a sealed environment is a priority.
- Both mesh options eliminate debris such as leaves, twigs, and other outdoor elements. The choice between 18/14 and 20/20 screens depends on your specific preferences regarding visibility, airflow, and insect protection.
- Lafferty Aluminum & Screening ensures that 18/14 and 20/20 screens are crafted from durable materials, providing long-lasting performance. The selection may also depend on the level of wear and tear expected in your particular environment.
- The choice between 18/14 and 20/20 screens should be based on the specific requirements of the area where the screens will be installed. Factors such as the surrounding landscape, climate, and the intended use of the space play a crucial role in making the right decision.
